Apparently Green Day are involved with the new NASA mission

'Out of this world'

Yesterday, NASA’s InSight Mars Lander touched down on Mars with almost perfect precision. The rocket is set to probe into the neighbouring planet’s core to help NASA scientists understand how Mars was formed, and they’ll be doing that with the help of…Green Day?

When the Lander touched down on the surface of Mars, the iconic rock legends tweeted to confirm that they were, for some reason, connected to this other worldly mission. “Officially landed on Mars,” they wrote. “‘Green Day Since 1986’ was etched on a chip on the @NASAInSight Mars Lander that landed at Elysium Planitia today. Out of this world.”
